The extremely popular, Academy Award winning 2015 film returns to our screen in shiny 'BLACK & CHROME'.
Deciding to ditch the vibrant colours of the theatrical version, director George Miller preferred to present the film in classic black and white, as he saw it essential to the story when presenting a post-apocalyptic world.
“One thing I’ve noticed is that the default position for everyone is to de-saturate post-apocalyptic movies,” Miller told Slashfilm. “There’s only two ways to go, make them black and white — the best version of this movie is black and white, but people reserve that for art movies now. The other version is to really go all-out on the color. The usual teal and orange thing? That’s all the colors we had to work with. The desert’s orange and the sky is teal, and we either could de-saturate it, or crank it up, to differentiate the movie.”
— Years after the collapse of civilization, the tyrannical Immortan Joe enslaves apocalypse survivors inside the desert fortress the Citadel. When the warrior Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) leads the despot's five wives in a daring escape, she forges an alliance with Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy), a loner and former captive. Fortified in the massive, armored truck the War Rig, they try to outrun the ruthless warlord and his henchmen in a deadly high-speed chase through the Wasteland.
